Some photos from our Valley of Flowers and Hemkund Sahib trek with Great Indian outdoors company.

Day 1 - Drive from Haridwar to Auli

We drove from the Holi city of Haridwar to Auli in a small tempo traveller. The entire 280 kms drive were through mountains and rivers running along the roads.

In Auli we stayed at Himalayan Eco lodge which is part of GIO. The lodge had a nice overview of the all the nearby mountain ranges and a beautiful apple and flowers garden.
